7-28-08 progress!

Well, after a week up at the house, things that we planned to get done, didn't...but there was progress.

Hubby went and purchased the wood stove, it's going to be delivered, and installed August 15th, so hubby had to change his plans with his work schedule, and get the hearth prepared.

But first...before he could prepare a new hearth, he had to do floor repair...ugh..always something else first...there was major water damage to the beam to the right of the fireplace....



After a good deal of work, it was finally patched up...under the rotted floor, there is a basement window...which is practically gone also..so we have to order one special, but the floor should hold up now....



Now for the hearth! Hubby had to spend another few hours getting supplies...(it's a 1/2 hour drive) but he just had time to get the hearth installed, before his vacation was over! It still needs to be grouted, but it will have time to cure, before the delivery.




Hubby didn't plan on going back up next weekend, he wanted to have time to rest..but it's not likely now, he has things he wanted to get done..the sooner it's done, the sooner the electricians can come back.

We did however, come across one little glitch in the cabinet making ...well...he made the corner cabinet, and managed to get it primed before he left, but..it doesn't fit through the basement door, to stash it away ...now it's stuck in the garage, taking up space, he'll have to move it in and out, so he can make the next one..till he can get it upstate! (however he can do that...) and..what if it doesn't fit through the door????? uh oh...
